The Husband and I attended the Husband’s oldest friend’s wedding earlier this week. It was held at Hampton Court House, which was a very impressive venue and as the bride is a Buddhist, it was a Buddhist ceremony rather than a traditional affair. It made a bit more interesting. Here are a few pictures caught on mine and the Husband’s phones (we didn’t take the camera!):

Babysham for the toast – complete with straw!
Lastly – what I wore – because that’s why you all read this blog right? For my outfits!
Daisy headband – Accessorize
Dress – c/o Yours Clothing
Shrug – Simply Be
Shawl (just seen) – Evans
Both the dress and the shrug have sat in my wardrobe with the labels still on for goodness knows how long. The dress was courtesy of Yours Clothing when they tried to start up a blogger affiliation, which never really got off the ground. The shrug I bought to wear to a wedding last year (maybe the year before?!) but changed my outfit last minute. Anyway, a wedding at Hampton Court House seemed a suitable venue to wear what I think to be my most sophisticated outfit. The dress is amazing and certainly not the usual semi-cheap looking item from Yours. As I’ve said in the past, it does have some gems – but they are few and far between. The only downfall of the dress was the length! Its really really long and even in wedges I was tripping on it. That said, this outfit will be worn to the other wedding I am going to in October.
The outfit shots were taken on our way home as we didn’t quite manage to get any taken during the day!
